Project 365 Thu 10 Dec 09

I'm looking for a new phone and my shopping list is long: a big screen, a good camera (so I don't have to pay for a camera and phone and carry both around with me) and somewhere to store all those names, addresses and birthdates we all collect ... oh, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg of course!

But seriously ... I'm desperately looking for ideas. Do you have a camera you absolutely love or even one on your wishlist? Why do you love it? Does it have something special you've never seen anywhere else or does it just float your boat? LOL

And my selection so far?

LG KC910 Renoir.

My rating: I seriously like this phone. The camera is impressive although a review I found suggests using it via the touch screen is a negative.

Specifications: 8mp camera with Schneider-Kreuznach optics (including ISO settings up to 1600), 3 in screen, touch screen only, dolby audio, no 3.5mm headphone jack, DIVx, video, video recording, GPS (Google), wi fi, widgets, 107.8x55.9x13.95, 114g weight, touch screen, 70Mb inbuilt memory, external up to SD 8Gb.

Samsung M8910 Pixon 12.

My review: I love the look and touch screen although apparently it’s a resistive screen that takes a lot of pressing.

Specifications: The world's first 12mp camera, 5x digital zoom, weight 119g, dimensions 107.9x53x13.8, video recording, no Xenon flash, FM radio, wi fi, external memory, touch screen, 10MB built in storage, SD memory card, no 3.5mm headphone jack.

Sony Ericsson C905

My rating: This baby looks so good and I'm seriously leaning towards it!

Specs: 8.1 mp Cybershot camera, 104x49x19.5mm, 136 gms, GPS (Google), wi fi, 160MB internal, Xenon flash, 2GB storage included but supports up to 8GB, blog link, fm radio, media player.

Nokia N86

My review: The camera (completely ignoring even including a 20x digital zoom) is hard to ignore although it’s a little more expensive than the others I’ve been looking at.

Specifications: 8 mp camera with Carl Zeiss optics (20x digital zoom ... and what that would do to an 8mp shot is anybody's guess!), no Xenon flash, variable aperture to F2.4, wide angle lens, shutter speed to 1/1000 second, wide angle, GPS (Nokia maps), video, sharing and internet, music (FM and Nokia internet radio), 2.6" screen, internal memory 8Gb, external SD memory 16 Gb.
